And unless you are a supercentenarian - and you probably aren't - there's no chance you can remember a play quite like that one in a Major League game.

The Rangers turned a rare 5-4 triple play in the fourth inning of Texas' 8-6 win over the Los Angeles Angels Thursday night.

Angels hitter David Fletcher smoked a grounder to Rangers third baseman Jurickson Profar, who caught the ball on a short hop.

NZ passes ban on foreign homebuyers into law
Australian and Singapore citizens will also be exempt from the ban due to their countries' free trade deals with New Zealand. At the time, the choice sliver of land - which measured just a tenth of an acre - was on sale for $840,000.

That's not all. Stats by Stats noted that this was the first big-league triple play without the batter being retired since June 3, 1912, when the Dodgers did it against the Reds. Profar then threw to Rougned Odor, who stepped on second to force the runner out who had been on first. Profar tagged the bag to force out the runner from second, and then tagged the runner on third base for the second out.

"It was an all-around heads-up play by Profar", said Rangers manager Jeff Banister. "Very slow heartbeat in that moment".

Building off the excitement of that insane play, the Rangers came from behind to beat the Angels 8-6. According to SABR's excellent triple-play database, the last time that happened in a game was August 17, 1950* when the St. Louis Browns** turned three against the Cleveland Indians. Odor singled in the go-ahead run as Texas scored four in the eighth.
